Proud of Pride

Whoa what a weekend. Pride 2011 was on Saturday and was a total blast. Although I did end up going to the wrong park to begin I ended up in right place. I invited my friend Sue to come along with me.
She loves her photo being taken.

My gazebo was a total Gong show and we thought FOR SURE we were being Punk'd trying to get that thing up. I was in stitches before we even began.

THEN I had breakfast/lunch AND dinner all in own sitting.

A proper foot long.. I thought these long existed in New York!!!!
(oh yeah btw welcome to the 21st century NY)

I didn't manage to get a photo of my stall at the beginning.. I apologize it looks so bare! It was good because I realize what I am missing which is MORE levels which I hope to gain by my next stall experience.

I think  my favorite customers were two clowns!

Doesn't her flower look nice????

All in all it was a great day. Sue and I are scheming for next year already.

  1. Wow! I just came across your blog whilst looking for resources to help a friend from LiveJournal figure out how to do kanzashi... Because I linked an image of the rainbow-coloured kanzashi flower I made to wear to Pride here in the UK this Saturday! It was my first attempt... That's why it's lopsided and too small (or that's my story, anyway). At any rate, I'm going to make a new one from the same fabric (I might make it so big I have to intersperse rainbow petals with different coloured ones - I'm thinking maybe red, or a really colourful fishy fabric I happen to have lying around, because I only have a scrap of rainbow left).

    I just find it really funny that, as a direct result of my making a rainbow-coloured fabric flower for Pride, I came across your rainbow-coloured flower for Pride!

    I did get better, by the way... Attempts 2 and 3 are here: By the time I made the pink-and-blue one I think I really got the hang of it!
